Well the rain from Ernesto stayed well North of Carlow with just 0.8mm recorded at my station and 1mm in Oak Park, Malin Head saw the highest total with 22mm. It was a very mild night too with a low of 16.2c at my station!
Ernesto is well clear now at this stage and a warm day ahead which will be mainly dry with some sunny spells developing later too as temps could hit 24c! Breeze will increase again though.
With the low rainfall over the last week and strong breeze increasing drying the soil Moisture Deficits are at 68mm around Carlow and not a lot of rain is expected in the next 5 days meaning grass growth has now slowed.
In some good news however the 70th Tullow Agricultural Show takes place today outside Tullow, see you all there😁
